Ship Building!!!

6th Mar 2018

Following on from our World Around Us topic of 'Rescue at Sea', we made our own boats and tested them to see if they would:

  • Float
  • Move
  • Hold 5 passengers.

We used tin foil, a straw, card and plasticine.

We were not allowed to use scissors or any other joining materials.

We tested our boats with 5 multi link cubes as our passengers. ALL our boats met all of our test criteria but a few did take on a little bit of water.

We had lots of fun this afternoon!  However, I don't think jobs in Harland and Wolff are under any threat from our budding engineers at the minute!
